The last 3 Olympics have been spoiled by weed on the lake.  That won’t happen when they have the races here.

I told my son he won’t be let back in the house unless he wins a medal – well I probably will!

The public will come onto the site from a new bridge via Windsor Race course.  The temporary bridge is strong enough to take the weight of 27,000 people every hour and a quarter.

Hopefully we’ll win a bucketful of medals and we can all get merry and drunk and have a bit of fun.

Question from the audience: “Will Sir Michael Redgrave be here at all?”
